Ultrasonic Waves in Solid Media


Ultrasonic wave techniques, used increasingly in areas ranging from nondestructive inspection of materials to medical diagnosis, evolved from basic physical principles of wave mechanics. This profusely illustrated text brings together basic physics and modern applications. Joseph Rose explains the physical principles of wave propagation and then relates them to ultrasonic wave mechanics and the more recent guided wave techniques used to inspect and evaluate aircraft, power plants, and pipelines in chemical processing plants. He stresses mechanics, mathematics, and modeling throughout the book, establishing the framework for practical applications. The text is complemented by 344 illustrations, laboratory experiments, and 272 exercises.
